are you sick of seeing baby stuff yet? haha. i don't even have any kids, nor am i expecting. and also not planning for any in the near future. but baby stuff is just so cute to sew.
so here are the final diaper covers for my friend's baby's first birthday photoshoot. aren't they cute?
are you sick of chevrons yet? they've been very popular recently. and some have debated that it's just a zigzag. either way. it's a fun print.
this time the fabric was not quite wide enough to get the full front and back connected with the chevron/zigzags running horizontally. they would've looked weird running vertically. so i had to do the crotch seam this time. i also just wanted to get these done, so i tried to throw my perfectionism out the window. key word being "tried." it still took me about an hour, maybe hour and a half, including cutting, to finish these. plus my serger started being mean. okay i was trying to go too fast and wasn't getting the leg hole to curve properly. so i had to fix it. curved edges on a serger require some finesse. not something you can race through too quickly. i think i was getting cocky about my serging skills and the serger wanted to remind me who's boss.
anyway, i also decided not to spend the time matching the chevron/zigzags ("chevzags"? no?) on the side seams. the baby won't notice.
can't wait to see the photos of him wearing these. cuteness.
